Founded in 2010, we are a bespoke English leather company that uses traditional machinery, templates, knives, and tools from a bygone age. Our luxury leather goods which include briefcases, holdalls and English leather bags, have been faithfully recreated using cutting knives and tools acquired from Shuttleworths of Chester. Shittleworths is a legendary business closed a while ago but we have taken up their legacy and their former master saddler now heads our team of craftsman at the Rutherfords workshop in rural Cheshire. Our hand stitched heirlooms of the future will particularly appeal to those who thought that such timeless quality and design was no longer available.
Rutherfords are proud Members of The Guild of Master Craftsmen. The Guild assesses, promotes and supports excellence in workmanship.
All of our small leather accessories, briefcases, travel goods and belts from any of our Collections are made to stand the test of time and become your constant companion for many years. All of our products are Hand Crafted from only the very finest leathers. Each piece is individually handmade by our skilled craftsmen and craftswomen, our leather goods will in time acquire a rich patina and with care be worthy of passing down to the next generation.
